  • Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:30:08 +0000: The Guardian view on fighting prejudice: a call to action for Jeremy Corbyn | Editorial - Internet | The Guardian
    Two reports this week suggest Labour needs to pay attention to the way it tackles abuse

    Two reports came out this week that underlined the interaction between abuse on social media and a fear of hatred and violence in the real world. On Monday, the cross-party home affairs committee delivered a clear and helpful analysis of antisemitism that was particularly critical of Twitter and its repeated failure to watch for and take down antisemitic posts. But it also criticised both the Liberal Democrats and in particular Labour for the way, through inaction, they too appear to condone antisemitic behaviour. On Wednesday, an internal Labour party report upheld claims of violence and homophobic abuse this summer in Wallasey, the constituency of Angela Eagle, which began when she challenged Jeremy Corbyn for the leadership. Again, Twitter trolls and public anger marched together.

    The upshot is that it is no longer reasonable for Labour leaders to deny the charge that an abusive culture is flourishing in some parts of the party. For as long as this accusation has been around – and the argument broadly coincides with the year of civil war over the party’s leadership – the instinctive response of Mr Corbyn’s supporters has been to defend and counterattack, claiming that it is a cynical ploy by their enemies, who exaggerate rumour in order to undermine the new regime. For understandable reasons, the view from inside the Corbyn camp is that the movement has been besieged from the start by parliamentary sceptics, backed by most of the media, seeking to sabotage it.

  • Thu, 20 Oct 2016 15:12:13 +0000: The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air): for those who like their podcasts strange - Internet | The Guardian

    This surreal variety show from Neutral Milk Hotel’s Julian Koster is as weird as they come – and will hypnotise you in minutes

    ‘In the grand ballroom at the top of the Eiffel Tower, the red velvet curtains part and, suddenly, the giant On Air sign above the stage lights up …” And so begins The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air). If you like your podcasts strange, this new offering from the stable that brought you the darkly funny Welcome To Night Vale is just the vintage-sounding oddball you need.

    At first, it seems to be an old-fashioned variety show set in Paris, but it quickly switches to something more. Neutral Milk Hotel’s Julian Koster is the hapless Julian the janitor, whose voice crackles with heartbreak and determination to get up on stage. “Even in his fantasies, he ruins everything,” laments the narrator. “Who is this personality who cannot resist the bright lights of the stage, the beautiful, shining microphones, the hypnotic pull of laughter and applause … who has gone so far as to imagine a narrator to keep him company, announcing the events of his life as if he was the star of screen, stage and story?”

  • Wed, 19 Oct 2016 15:17:49 +0000: If the US hacks Russia for revenge, that could lead to cyberwar | Trevor Timm - Internet | The Guardian

    The US should attempt to de-escalate tensions by negotiating some form of international cyber treaty before this gets out of control

    What’s the CIA’s brilliant plan for stopping Russian cyber-attacks on the US and their alleged interference with the US election? Apparently, some in the agency want to escalate tensions between the two superpowers even more and possibly do the same thing right back to them.

    NBC News reported late last week that the CIA is working up blueprints for an “unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia”, and it sounds a lot like they’re planning on leaking documents on Vladimir Putin, just as the Russians are accused of doing to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.

  • Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:53:58 +0000: Would you do your banking with a tech startup? - Internet | The Guardian

    Monzo wants to take on the traditional banking sector on its own turf, aiming to offer a full current account service in early 2017

    Banks are boring, for a good reason. The last thing you want to hear from the organisation you’ve entrusted with your money is their exciting plans for how to shake up the world of finance. Generally, you want a beige person in beige clothes gesturing to whatever is the digital equivalent of a big vault filled with gold. It’s boring, it’s reassuring, it’s safe.

    Banks are, in short, the opposite of a tech startup. So a tech startup wanting to take on the banks on their own turf has its work cut out for it.

  • Tue, 18 Oct 2016 12:24:08 +0000: Did trolls cost Twitter $3.5bn and its sale? - Internet | The Guardian

    Twitter has struggled to prevent abusive users from overwhelming discussion, but have trolls also reduced the value of the company?

    Twitter might have finally found some motivation to deal with its troll problem. Three and a half billion motivations, really.

    The company has spent the past few months courting potential buyouts from companies including Google, Disney, and enterprise software firm Salesforce.
